The Malta U-19’s women’s national team will face Faroe Islands and Armenia in their upcoming UEFA European Championship qualifications, in April.
Led by coach Frank Schembri, the Maltese side was drawn alongside these two nations in Group B4 which is pencilled for April.
Malta will be travelling to Armenia and will launch its campaign on April 4 before playing their second and final game four days later.
This will be Malta’s third participation in League B having played in this category in both Round 1 and Round 2 of the past season.
While Malta and Armenia will meet for the first time at this level, Schembri’s side met the Nordic nation in last season’s round 2 with the Maltese chalking a 3-2 comeback win which propelled them towards a historic League A promotion.
In the top-tier of this competition, Malta rubbed shoulders with giants Norway and Portugal, and also Belgium who will host the final tournament next year.
